Undoubtedly the best view of the incredible Chicago skyline as seen from the grounds of the Alder Planetarium. This was the third attempt at capturing this as the weather each other time was fiercely cold, windy and rainy so on the third attempt, I was extremely lucky to get a break in the weather . The expansive view shows the Chicago Aquarium all the way to Navy Pier.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.

VAST DISPLAYS

THE HIGHEST QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC DISPLAYS EVER CREATED

VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.  Learn more
